Does the marlin have an adj trigger like the savages accu trigger? The only reason i say this is because i am a real fan of marlin. But like i said before the savage had a real smooth and crisp trigget pull. Prob some where around 1.75 to 2.0 lbs

They use the same accutrigger design as savage, and yes it is adjustable. I left mine alone after shooting it a bit. The trigger pull from the factory is perfect as it sits

Are you sure the stock is Oak, they are usually Birch or laminated1 U can pick up a Savage with a scope from the factory. They are both nice Rifles. U can adjust the marlin trigger without taking the barrel off. It is definitely a difficult choice. Enjoy, the cartridge is awesome with either rifle!Cliff

Not only is the cartridge awesome, but you can still find it at normal price pretty much anywhere

My mistake its not oak its walnut. I just finished building an oak gun locker. And ur both right a real tough choice and it seems 17hmr is the only thing in any store and there plenty for all. The only reason i started looking at 17 was i tryed a few weeks ago to out shoot a gun next to me at the range. I though he was shooting 22winmag at 100yards so i said smallest group out of 3 shots buys the next hr at the range. Now normaly my marlin 925 holds about 1.000 at 100yds so when i shot a .872 i was jumping for joy. Then we measured his target and he shot a .592 i knew somthing was not right. And he told me it was a 17hmr. Now im hooked. Just a little back story

That's crazy, those did the worst out of mine, I guess even though they're the same brand, different rifles like different ammos

I was looking to get either a marlin 917vs or the savage mark2 both with the heavy barrel and adj 2 stage trigger. Thanks guys.
I had a Savage bolt action shortly after they came out with them and I sold it, it shot good as far as accuracy but it had one annoying quirk, if the mag wasn't in just so the darned thing wouldn't feed right when cycling the action, there was some up and down movement when the mag was inserted and if it wasn't in the right spot it couldn't feed. Now I am considering getting back into the 17 as I did like the way it shot but since that new 17 super is coming out I am going to wait and see what they offer in that, if the ammo is close to the same price which they say it will be I would rather have the added performance out of that then the hmr. The effective range of the super will be a little farther than the hmr. I am thinking I like the Henry Varmint Express, if they came out with a rifle in the new Super I would get one of those.
